Rafał Sroka

Berlin - Schwedter Nordwand

It was very cold, -4°C, but we did it anyways. With gloves and numb fingers, we got to the summit via a direct, most obvious variant. The usual crowds attacking the tower were not present. We had the whole face to ourselves and enjoyed the solitude at the top.

“Ich hab' noch einen Koffer in Berlin.”

Marlene Dietrich
